New Obama Ad: Imagine if McDonalds tried to get Blacks to vote for POTUS

9 5

It’s established that we here at TWIB! are on #TeamObama. But what in holy hell is this? Who was sitting in the pitch meeting and heard this then thought “This is AMAZING.  Black people will LOVE IT.” I know it says “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message” but I can’t believe he heard this and thought “Yup. That’s how we do.” Where was Michelle? Can you imagine Michelle Obama grooving to “We got your back…” as she walks through the White House? No.NO. Did they hire Keith Sweat like McDonald’s did when they wanted to push McNuggets on to the Black community? I WANT ANSWERS!!!!!!

And contrary to what some right wing critics think. The ad isn’t racist. It’s wack. There’s a difference.

    Has anyone verified the authenticity of this ad? The Obama tags are pretty easily acquired on the Internet.

      Tom Joyner’s morning show supposedly confirmed that time had been bought for this ad. Atleast 4 major news outlets have confirmed. If this is a fake then the Obama team shoudl have been on top of this as of this morning…

    Only months into the campaign and at least once a day I shake my head at this year’s campaign team. Today is no different. Where in the hell is David Plouffe?
